Tomorrow afternoon, the Store Tour of the Bb. Pilipinas 2018 Official Candidates will happen in select establishments at Araneta Center starting at 2pm. Their first stop will be Pizza Hut and Dairy Queen at Ali Mall before heading straight to the Taco Bell at the Cyber Park beside Novotel.
This will be another chance to meet the ladies and – hopefully – get quick photo ops with them.
See you there!

The Bb. Pilipinas 2016 Official Candidates spent one day enjoying and resisting all the calorie-filled offerings of Pizza Hut, Dairy Queen and Taco Bell
It was food-tripping day for the Binibinis when they went through three (3) sponsor visits at Pizza Hut, Dairy Queen and Taco Bell – food chains all operated in the country by the Araneta Group of Companies.
Resistance is a must for all forty (40) of them because eating in all three food outlets can spell the big difference between maintaining a slim waistline and pigging out on all the pizzas, blizzards and burritos they can lay their pretty hands on. But a slice or a bite or half-an-inverted ice cream treat won’t hurt, right?
Anyways, Binibinis Maria Lina Prongoso and Jessica Gonzales also had their twin birthday celebrations and were warmly greeted by everyone.
Binibini 38 Angelica Alita for Taco Bell
Binibini 8 Karen Ibasco for Dairy Queen
Cebuana Binibinis Maria Gigante (36) and Apriel Smith (22) for Pizza Hut

At the rate Christmas-themed TV commercials are coming up on the small screen nowadays, you won’t be surprised anymore as to which celebrity endorsers of different food and consumer products will have Yuletide 15- or 30-seconders next. And will our favorite ladies join in the fun? Of course!
Just earlier this week, our Bb. Pilipinas 2015 Queens – Miss Universe Philippines 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, Bb. Pilipinas International 2015 Janicel Lubina, Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental 2015 Christi Lynn McGarry, Bb. Pilipinas Supranational 2015 Rogelie Catacutan and Miss Globe 2015 Ann Colis – shot their Christmas TVC for Dairy Queen at GAMA Studio where they had fun playing around in make-believe snow, giant spoons and winter clothes.
You will be able to watch the finished product anytime soon. Be ready for the Christmas Dairy Queens of DQ in your favorite cable channels!

Janicel is proud of her Dairy Queen ad and TVC
Bb. Pilipinas International 2015 Janicel Lubina has not been that present in the social limelight the past month or so. Except for a string of BPCI-approved appearances like Dairy Queen and the like, she has really been pretty focused on training and preparing for Miss International 2015. After all, she will be the first among our Bb. Pilipinas 2015 Queens to be fielded in pageant battle abroad.
Janicel devotes her time to gym training, with regular one-on-one sessions in personality development and communication. And in just a matter of weeks from now, she will need to begin her lessons in Nihongo with the language teacher assigned by BPCI’s partners. There’s nothing like being able to speak more than just a sprinkle of the Japanese language to help endear her even more to the Tokyo locals. Given the anticipation of her arrival there, people will have a great deal of interest in our bet.
So is Janicel Lubina getting there? She most definitely is. 😉

Our Bb. Pilipinas 2015 Queens with the Dairy Queen mascot during the Press Launch of the TVC
Yesterday afternoon, our Bb. Pilipinas 2015 Queens – Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, Janicel Lubina, Christi McGarry, Rogelie Catacutan and Ann Colis – attended the Press Launch of their TV Commercial for Dairy Queen – the first in a long while for a 30-seconder to be produced locally for the frozen delight.
And you only need to wait till June 28 to see the said commercial air on cable TV. If you want to watch the same on free TV, then it should follow soon after.
By the way, all photos in this post are courtesy of Bruce Casanova. 😉

Our Bb. Pilipinas 2015 Queens as DQ Endorsers
Before anything else, allow me to greet everyone a Happy Independence Day!
Here it is, finally!
Be ready for a blizzard (no pun intended) of posters and standees of the Bb. Pilipinas 2015 Queens as the endorsers of Dairy Queen’s latest offering – the (Lotus) Speculoos Blizzard. And you will definitely see these bright ads in your favorite outlets and everywhere DQ is present in the Philippines.
Makes you really want to grab one. So go ahead, give yourself a Speculoos treat this long Holiday weekend! Who knows, you might even be able to chance upon one of them behind the counter. 😀
Miss Universe Philippines 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach for Philippine Star Women of Allure 2015
For Philippine Star Women of Allure 2015 once mor
For the Philippine Star Women of Allure 2015, Miss Universe Philippines 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach unleashed yet another appearance of her beautifully transforming self for Miss Universe 2015.
After all the sweaty workout posts I have made about her, it’s time to see her glamorous side, together with the more relaxed and wacky photos (see below) of her as a Dairy Queen staff and during a boodle lunch she shared with the other Bb. Pilipinas 2015 Queens during a meaningful Gawad Kalinga project.
Isn’t she just a joy to look at?
